KURT SEIDENSTICKER, FOUNDER & CEO OF VITAL PROTEINS BIO:
Kurt Seidensticker is the CEO and Founder of collagen-based wellness company, Vital Proteins.
A serial entrepreneur with more than two decades of experience, Kurt has successfully grown a
number of companies within the e-commerce space – a journey that eventually led him to
define a new space in the nutritional marketplace: powdered collagen. Kurt’s passion for health
and fitness – and his ambition to help others live their best lives – became the crux of the Vital
Proteins brand, and ultimately, the company mission. When he’s not strategizing Vital Proteins’
next move for big picture growth, Kurt can be found running along the Chicago lakefront or in
his kitchen whipping up his favorite green smoothie (complete with collagen, of course).
